The headquarters of the nonprofit Ohio Historical Society, the Ohio Historical Center abounds with exhibits and activities that showcase the state's diverse social, natural, and archeological history. Built in 1970, the museum's towering Brutalist edifice is a piece of history itself, lauded as "bold" and "imaginative” by the American Institute of Architects. Inside, a 15,000-square-foot gallery explores pivotal moments in the Buckeye State’s past, examining everything from Ohio’s role in the Civil War to Boomer Esiason’s stint as Secretary of State. A natural-history exhibit regales guests with interactive displays of animals, plants, and geography. In addition to its permanent exhibits, the center hosts an ever-changing selection of featured exhibits and special events.

Outside the museum sits Ohio Village, a re-creation of a Civil War–era town. Costumed villagers bustle about the square, performing chores and activities of the era, such as churning butter and checking wooden PalmPilots. The town's 15 buildings showcase the height of 19th-century architecture and include a Gothic-revival church, a large town hall, and an open market. The village is also the home of the renowned Ohio Village Muffins, who regularly compete in games of baseball played by 19th-century rules.

Follow the legend's lifelong golf journey in the Decades of Nicklaus gallery, where each 10-year segment of Nicklaus' life—from his boyhood days in the '40s to his modern-day stardom—is embodied through a collection of memorable artifacts, including clubs, trophies, scorecards, and more.

The Kelton House Museum & Garden is a window that looks out onto another time, presenting a glimpse of Victorian life through the lens of a family that lived it. The home features possessions that the family actually used, from woven hair brooches to an intricate grandfather clock built in 1790. Each item's place within the home tells its own story about the family's lifestyle, and tour guides add to the experience by costuming themselves in period garb. But guided tours aren't the only way to experience the museum. The museum also offers an audio tour enhanced with a musical score and period-appropriate sound effects, such as clocks chiming and bells ringing to call the family to dinner.

Like all world-class museums, you can't see all the delights of the Columbus Museum in one day. Today's deal gives you a full day to not see it all: for $4, you'll get a one-day admission to the entire museum (a $10 value). The museum's abundance of beautiful, thought-tickling artwork—and marked absence of postmodern erotica rendered in excrement or, worse, LeRoy Neiman paintings­—makes it a perfect family activity.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.

After peering into the mysteries of the human body, guests can meander through the rest of COSI's classic exhibits. Named the No. 1 children's museum in the country by Parents magazine, COSI's three levels of hands-on experiences teach kids about the wonders of science without dull lectures or Honey-dismaying youth-shrinking experiments. Wee ones can explore the LEGO® Castle Adventure, which educates about medieval fortifications before letting kids build their own, or the high-wire unicycle, whose counterweight keeps riders upright as they traverse the 84-feet-long, 17-foot-high wire. Live shows round out the offerings with a one-on-one game of hoops between two trained rats, a demonstration of the static power of Van de Graaff generators, and a weather demonstration that simulates the windy power of a hurricane and the moist coolness of a cloud's interior.

Motorcycles have long played a crucial role in the American mythos. The vroom of a twin-cylinder engine conjures images of Evel Knievel soaring through the sky on a daredevil jump or James Dean perched astride his 1955 Triumph Trophy, clad in a black leather jacket and brimming with smoldering angst. Even those who haven't felt their hands on the throttle can appreciate the motorcycle as an all-American icon of freedom, rebellion, and individuality.

The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum celebrates this iconography with exhibits that pay tribute to every aspect of motorcycling history. The museum's permanent collection is chock-full of memorabilia and ephemera from the early days of motorcycling, such as a Roper Steamer from 1894 and a turbo-powered penny-farthing from the same era. Visitors can also tour the Hall of Fame itself, a main-floor exhibition that celebrates the heroes of the racetrack and blacktop.
